to the budget of paul ryan, who is now the vice presidential nominee for the republicans. and governor romney has endorsed and embraced the ryan budget. and i think -- and it was senator harkin's idea that we ought to explain that ryan budget. so i'm going to do my best to talk about it as the chairman of the environment and public works committee, who has the jurisdiction of highways, bridges, transportation systems and the environment. and also just make a couple of comments about medicare. and i know senator harkin's going to go into that in great depth. i just want to make sure everybody understands that what i'm talking about comes straight from the budget. so if you look at page 78 of the report accompanying the ryan budget resolution, mr. ryan makes it clear that he wants to make devastating cuts to transportation. now, what do i mean by that? i mean devastating. i mean 50% cut. that means about a million jobs that would be lost, madam president, if that ryan budget were to go into effect. we are talking about construction jobs. we're talking about an area that has been hit so hard. we

especially by paul ryan in his vice presidential acceptance speech, mayor, was this claim that they were with obama from the beginning. they were rooting with this guy from the sidelines, open to cooperate with him and we know that romney was running for president again from the very day he lost last night. it's now on the record he wasn't rooting for him. he was looking for an opening. and mitch mcconnell was saying i'm going to stop this guy in his tracks so he doesn't have one trophy to show the voter in four years. >> chris, you're asking me. i believe that that's exactly what the republican goal was. i believe that they met and conspired for that purpose, and they executed it. there wasn't one occasion on the interest of the country and this nation superseded partisan barring of mr. obama's re-election campaign. and it's a tragedy because what mr. romney said is true. when an election is over, we do come together, supposedly. this is not what was done with reference to mr. obama's first term as president. >> what do you make -- we've got a little report here because i didn't even kn
mr. romney and mr. ryan are saying it's the president who are into social divisiveness. they are the ones splitting the countries between the have and have nots. they're the one playing the wealth disparity card. >> well, quite the opposite. you know i was a psychologist before i was a political person. in psychology we say that sometimes if someone's got a problem, that they tend to talk about it in ways that is very contradictory to their own feelings. the fact is that mitt romney said 47% of the american people basically are free-loaders parasites. he was talking about good hard working, salt of the earth, ohioans, americans. that started a narrative that built up over a series of months as we watched this man and watched this campaign. and that video confirmed for many ohioans exactly what they were thinking this man may be like. and he can say all he wants to say about class warfare, but he's the one waging it. you know he pays 14.1% in federal income tax. the average ohioan pays more than 20% in federal income tax. >> i'm sorry, sir, you're
>> paul ryan, truth or dare. >> the president came to janesville after the blunt shut down or before the plant shut down. >> that's what he said in 2008. >> well, as it turns out, that plant didn't last another year. >> what they're trying to suggest is i said that barack obama was responsible for our plant shut down in janesville, that's not what i was saying. read the speech. >> read the next paragraph. we saw the speech. what's your point? >> so my point -- here's my point. that's my point. the point i was making about gm. here's the point, george. >> the point is, mr. ryan, questions deserve straight answers. >> at some point the truth should matter. >> people cannot escape the facts. they can't escape the facts at all. ♪ come on let's vogue ♪ come on let's vogue ♪ let your body go with the flow ♪ >> we begin as democrats prepare to make their case for president obama's re-election, with their convention set to be gaveled to order in just one hour. first lady michele obama caps the opening night with a speech that will talk about the president's connection with
paul ryan on the ticket of just supposed to be the thing for the ticket. that is when mitt romney picked up. more than a few republicans wondering why the campaign is not showcasing it ryan now front and center, for a campaign concerned about its base, renewed focus on one guy who still jazzes that base, ryan, get used to seeing him, including this very show tomorrow. paul ryan, my exclusive special guest. charlie gasparino, a lot of republicans have been saying, what took you so long, what to you think? >> well, from what i understand, prominent business republicans, have given a lot of money to mitt romney over the last you know year. and have access to him through direct lior intermedia, voicing their concern he is not using paul ryan enough, and that he is been muzzling paul ryan, this is reached a sort of crescendo, talk it pointed where ryan has had to dispel the rumor or notion, i should say, he has been muzzled. neil: he is speaking everywhere. but media decides if they want tto pay attention. >> but what is he saying? is he taking the fight to president obama, who accordi
the deficit, along with the ryan budget, 29 years before we solved it. if i did not see and hear the kind of specific -- i did not see or hear the kind of specifics we were hoping to hear from them. host: -- >> the next set of questions comes from major garrett. >> i know it is your line to be critical of the republicans and their convention, but i want you to address two lines of rhetorical attack. one the came from paul ryan, one the came from it romney himself. he said that those who graduated from college need not spare any longer at their faded obama posters on the wall and think that a life at home is all the have to vote for. governor romney said -- there's nothing to be ashamed with voting for obama, but if you are disappointed, there is an alternative. many of the partisans like that. in a broader audience, those were lines of attack that might resonate. how concerned are you about a conversation along those lines diminishing the president's possibility of being reelected? guest: you described them as lines, that's what they were. with be clear, if you go the mitt romney paul rya
and paul ryan. we did nothing but see him and paul ryan. 28 million households watching probably. he also did a good job in selling the new theme. the new theme is not barack obama, european socialists. the new theme is disappointment. we were all happy four years ago with his message of hope and change, but there is no hope. there was no change. now we have to move on. whether they believe it or not in the hearts, it is a pretty good team. >> mitch mcconnell almost right out of the box after the election saying our guy is going to defeat this guy. i think they did well. it is a new introduction. this is the moment people will finally start to tune in. labor day weekend. it is the conventions. this is the real deal for the next two months, and i think they did not do anything wacko. all the fringe stuff is completely suppressed. >> except for clint eastwood. >> they had a problem occasionally with factual things, but other than that, they did well. >> i think romney succeeded in convincing the convention that he was one of them. he did present to the american people a state that has some
yesterday, congressman ryan, the vice presidential nominee, accused president obama of having no record. listen. >> let me quote president obama four years ago. if you don't have a record to run on, then you -- paint your opponent as someone people should run from. ladies and gentlemen, that is exactly what barack obama is doing today. you see, the president has no record to run on. >> has no record to run on. well, let's go through that a minimum. you might not agree now with the policies and you might not agree with the record but he has one. it includes he passed the affordable care act which was 100 years in the making. he rescued the economy from collapse. most sweeping wall street reform since the great depression. and he killed bin laden. rescued the auto industry, signed the led better fair pay act and ended the war in iraq, reformed the stun loan system. no record, steve? >> well, i mean, what ryan is trying to sell there is rationalization. i mean, that -- line in the speech really is -- designed to trigger an emotion in poem. designed to take the swing voters who i am talking
. harkin: mr. president, i come to the floor to talk again on the devastating so-called ryan budget, which, of course, is now the romney-ryan budget. and i will speak about that very shortly, but before -- i also wanted to focus some attention on the -- how the ryan budget is preventing us from getting a farm bill this year. we have a farm bill that we passed in the senate but the house can't get it done. earlier this year, the senate passed a bipartisan farm bill. it had broad support of republicans and democrats. all farm groups, consumer groups, environmental groups. so with all of that support, you would think it would be easy for the house. but the house has not followed suit. unable or perhaps unwilling to bring the farm bill to the house floor, they've similarly refused to take up the senate bill. so our farm policy has languished at a time when literally farm country is burning up because of a drought. and this week, as i understand it, the house is going to adjourn and go home without taking any action on a farm bill. leaving our farmers and ranchers in the lurch. when all the hou
republicans, he's now posing as something more conservative. and is ryan the future or-- and i think this depends on the election-- do the republicans get smashed in the election? looking at the polling now, unlikely, but who knows? do they go through the kind of soul searching that democrats went through in the late '80s and '90s that give birth to bill clinton and the centrist democrat movement? it will be interesting to watch. >> rose: you think there's a possibility that if the republicans are defeated badly and they say we have to rebuild a different party and that party might look to itself and say are we part of the future or trying to hold the future back. >> that's right. are we a party that really is going to embrace immigration? are we a party that's really going to embrace minorities? are we a party that believes in fiscal responsibility? but where the combination has to be some kind of tax revenue and spending cuts. i think that's the... a lot of that will be determined in this election, not entirely but there clearly is that tension out there. >> rose: where do you thin
